The EL-8500VA is a multi-format scaling HDMI, USB Type C, HDBaseT, and VGA input presentation switch, which allows the user to output at a scaled resolution of the user’s choosing over the mirrored HDMI and HDBaseT outputs. The HDMI and USB-C ports support resolutions up to 4K@60 (4:4:4, 8-bit) while the HDBaseT output supports automatic down-conversion of 4K60(4:4:4) sources to 4K60(4:2:0). The VGA inputs support resolutions up to WUXGA. The HDBaseT output provides a great solution to extend your audio and video up to 70 meters (at 4K) over a single run of Cat.5e/6/7 cable as well as providing 48V PoH power to compatible HDBaseT Receivers.
This unit also includes multiple analogue stereo audio inputs and a microphone input along with an amplified analogue stereo output to provide a range of audio routing and mixing flexibility. The built-in audio mixer function allows the user to mix audio from any analogue input with the microphone input for presentation or lecture theatre usage. The ability to switch back and forth between mixed and non-mixed audio simplifies the presentation experience.
A trigger input interface is also provided to allow the easy addition of a remote control keypad, or other trigger-supporting products, which can be installed within a podium or within a table in a conference room or classroom. This interface can allow the user to activate functions with the simple press of a button. Standard control is available via front panel buttons with an On-Screen Display (OSD), WebGUI, Telnet and RS-232.
